On the heels of Spencer Pratt’s announcements to write a tell-all about his relationship with Heidi Montag and release a sex tape featuring her, the couple has been spotted vacationing together in Costa Rica. Although they’ve been separated for months and Heidi Montag recently filed for divorce, the couple, who found fame onÂ MTV‘sÂ The Hills, was spotted over the weekend by TMZ at a hotel. Keep reading for the explanation of their Costa Rican vacation…
It’s rare that you see a couple on the verge of divorce and with the threat of memoir or sex tape releases enjoying a relaxing vacation together, but that seems to be the case for Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt. The notorious couple fromÂ MTV‘sÂ The Hills has been at each other’s throats for the past several days after Spencer Pratt threatened to release a tell-all and/or sex tape from his relationship with Heidi and she subsequently threatened to sue him. They seem to have put their troubles behind them because they were spotted this week vacationing together in Costa Rica.
TMZ spotted the couple in Costa Rica on Sunday and Spencer Pratt explains why they’re together.Â ”I had to bring the puppies down and help them move in,” he tells People magazine. “[Heidi] thought I was going to leave, but I’m not. I didn’t want to get divorced â€¦ I have nothing in Malibu, I’m homeless, I’m nothing without her.”
Heidi Montag corroborates Spencer Pratt’s story, but she’s not in the mood for a reconciliation.Â ”Everything was calm and going smoothly with the divorce,” she says. “We were really getting along and it was amazing he was being so thoughtful to help me move. Then things turned.” The turn of events in question is Spencer’s threat to release a sex tape. Heidi denies it saying, “There is no sex tape that exists and there never was. Spencer is trying to drum up press. This is exactly why I wanted to divorce him in the first place.”
Spencer Pratt insists that the sex tape does exist, but he isn’t sure if he’ll actually release it.Â ”I told Heidi â€¦ if you don’t want to do the new reality show with me, then I’ll have to release old footage,” he says. “I can get $5 million from a sex tape, but I really don’t want to do that. It’s not the way I want things to be. Heidi is furious with me but I need to look out for myself.”
Their Costa Rican vacation seems to be coming to an end as well.Â ”I’m going to leave the hotel and get a house because Spencer wonâ€™t leave me alone and won’t go back to Malibu right now,” Montag says. “It’s just too hard. I still love him, but I can’t stand what he’s doing.”
